Sean, If I can get one person to go with me it's a trip. I'v been wanting to do this for years and now is the time I figured a year is loads of time for the intersted to get them selves in shape

btw I know V01MX will drive that far so I guess it's a go

Although it's a year away I plan on having everything worked out in the next few months so people can plan and save for a monster trip like this! It will be a trip to remember for sure. If anyone has any info they would like to share please chime in. you can also PM me or email at rider23@gmail.com

This is for the serious rider only, please don't say you will be going unless you are sure you can make it. I will be taking payments to lock in riders at about the six month before departure date to insure the cost is even for all from Ottawa.

The ride of a lifetime
Been to Moab / St George / Grand Junction / Fruita 10 times or so since 1999 - all bicycling, but want to take my MC next time. If you have questions about the area, PM me. It is beautiful and like you say, "the ride of a lifetime"!

Rider, I won't be joining you on this one: while the advantage of being a high school teacher is 9 weeks of riding in the summer, the drawback is that I can't do more than a weekend ride in May... It says so on my contract...

I'm thinking two days to get there, five days riding, two days back. Toss in a day for some must see or must ride along the way. Travel on the weekends and ride during the week that will cut down the weekend traffic.

Thinking of mixing Camping with Hotel's? All open for suggestion

I'll be building a trailer to haul six bikes. Five if Dan ships his Gold Wing up

Do a quick check for when "Jeep Week" is next year. You will want to avoid it at all costs... crazy busy on the roads, trails and in the town (people book a year out for this week...)
